Cloud Cult are presenting a sneak-peek screening of their forthcoming film The Seeker on Feb. 10 at Minneapolis’s Riverview Theater. Following the screening there will be a Q&A and meet-and-greet with the band, and film director Jeff D. Johnson.

The Seeker is a feature-length narrative film featuring Alex McKenna and Josh Radnor. The experimental art-drama follows a girl named Grace, whose idyllic life takes a sharp turn when immense tragedy prompts her to embark on a life-defining journey. According to Cloud Cult, the film is representative of humanity’s search for the meaning of life and the divine.

The film’s sneak-peek screening is set to coincide with the release of Cloud Cult’s album of the same name. The Seeker, the band’s 10th full-length studio album, hits shelves on Feb. 12. It is the first album to be recorded entirely at Earthology Records, the band’s solar-powered studio in Wisconsin.

The band have a North American tour in store, in which they will be playing The Seeker from beginning to end while the film screens behind them. The tour kicks off this Saturday, Feb. 6, in Lutsen and concludes May 29 at Revival Fest in Clark’s Grove. The tour also includes a March 11 show at Grandma’s Sports Garden in Duluth and a March 12 performance at the State Theatre in Minneapolis.

Tickets for the Minneapolis screening ($15) and other screenings across the country are available at the band’s website.
